EVEN Hotels Shares Details of Two Hotel Openings

ATLANTA—EVEN Hotels, part of IHG Hotels & Resorts, announced the opening of EVEN Hotel Austin Uptown Near The Domain and will soon welcome EVEN Hotel Waco – University Area to its portfolio next month. The latest openings mark three EVEN Hotel properties across Texas, joining EVEN Hotel Shenandoah – The Woodlands, which opened in 2021.

The 126-room EVEN Hotel Austin Uptown Near The Domain, operating under Mopac Hotel Development LP, is located in the Texas capital, and the 132-room EVEN Hotel Waco – University Area, operating under Bridge Hotel Partners LP, is located downtown near Baylor University, the Waco Convention Center, and Magnolia Market at The Silos.

Raul Ortiz, vice president, global marketing and brand management, EVEN Hotels said, “EVEN Hotels is a brand on the move in its quest to put wellness within reach for more and more travelers. Adding these two hotels in prime Texas locations is huge for the brand, and now guests will have more options to unpack their best selves and stay well—however they define it.”

EVEN Hotel Austin Uptown Near The Domain or EVEN Hotel Waco – University Area have:

  • A sleep experience, spa-like showers, filtered water hydration stations throughout guestroom floors, and nightly tea service in the lobby
  • A refreshed restaurant concept—EVEN Kitchen & Bar—complemented by a 24/7 market.
  • 24/7 athletic studio with fitness equipment, choice of in-room fitness experience, and access to 18+ instructional fitness videos ranging from strength and HIIT to yoga and stretch.

Each property will also have elements of the brand’s latest prototype, where guests can now choose from three different room types containing varying exercise amenities ranging from yoga mats to interactive spin bikes.

Brendan Gilyan, owner, EVEN Hotel Austin Uptown Near The Domain, said, “We are thrilled to bring the EVEN Hotels brand to Uptown Austin, conveniently located near the vibrant Domain. There’s been a lot of excitement from guests to have a hotel in the area that embraces the essence of a healthy and balanced lifestyle.”

Kenny Bhakta, owner, EVEN Hotel Waco – University Area, said, “We’re excited to introduce the EVEN Hotels brand to Waco, Texas. Having a hotel designed with a wellness-centric focus in the area is going to offer an unrivaled experience for our guests. No matter the reason for traveling, we are confident this hotel will become a leading choice for those visiting Waco.”

EVEN Hotels plans to increase its national footprint by 35 percent by the end of 2024. EVEN Hotels currently has 26 properties open and an additional 33 in the development pipeline, including EVEN Hotel Bozeman Yellowstone Intl Airport and EVEN Hotel Miami – Sweetwater, which are set to open later this year, followed by EVEN Hotel Charlotte in 2025—the first property to include the brand’s refreshed prototype.
